According to the London School of Economics (LSE) online newspaper, The Beaver, Nazi Ring of Fire involves arranging cards on a table in the shape of a Swastika (with a pitcher of beer in the middle), and requires players to “Salute the Fuhrer.” Hmm...this Nazi Ring of Fire game sounds a touch antisemitic, doesn't it?
According to The Beaver:
LSE students are facing disciplinary action after participating in a Nazi-themed drinking game during the Athletics Union’s ski trip, held at a French mountain-side resort in December 2011. Later in the night, two students were involved in an altercation, one of whom sustained a broken nose from the incident.
It should be noted that the student who received the broken honker is actually Jewish. I cannot make this shit up, people. More from The Beaver:
“LSE Students’ Union Jewish Society (J-Soc) and the Union of Jewish Students (UJS) are appalled by a reported antisemitic assault that occurred after a Jewish student objected to a Nazi-themed drinking game, that was being played by his fellow students on a recent LSE Ski Trip in France. Nazi glorification and antisemitism have no place in our universities, which should remain safe spaces for all students,” said Jay Stoll, president of the LSE Students’ Union’s Jewish Society. “There is simply no context for what has happened here. Those who believe the game was all in good humour need to realize that when a Jewish student is subject to violence and the Nazi ideology glorified it is no joke but a spiteful, collective attack on a community.”
Alex Peters-Day, General Secretary of the LSE Students’ Union, said: “The Students’ Union does not tolerate any form of discrimination in any of its activities. A ‘drinking game’ with a Nazi theme could not be further from our values and we condemn the actions of those who participated in it. We have a zero tolerance approach to antisemitism at LSESU and after consultation with LSE, the Union of Jewish Students, the LSE Jewish Society and the LSE Athletics Union, we are all in agreement that the students involved in this incident should face disciplinary action. This action is on-going but we can say that the outcomes will likely involve an educational element alongside any punitive sanctions.”
